Bangalore:  ”The world is getting collaborative and everyone wants to access data and be connected- anytime, anywhere. This has increased the demand for data management and hence created many employment opportunities for BI Professionals, “said Jayant Prabhu, General Manager & Global Practice Head - Information Management of Wipro in his keynote session at the Business Intelligence conference, Hyderabad on 7 July, 2012.

He started by expressing that there are two factions of BI professionals: Those who truly believe that BI can change the world and those who don’t. He displayed a video which we have embedded here:

Traditionally BI was about reporting and creating a data warehouse. There has been a drastic shift from conventional BI due to trends like Predictive Analytics. The BI professionals who earlier created reports and  dashboards now have to develop skills to predict and analyze data. It would be greatly beneficial to learn Predictive techniques, data mining and algorithms that will help them make sense of all the data. BI Developers should have better visualization skills and need to keep in mind that there will be a change in technology constantly and they may need to pick up the following skills for the future:
•    Writing Mobile applications: This will be important in a world which seems to favour mobility.
•    Webification: This will involve converting content from its original format to a format which can be displayed on the web
•    Advanced Visualization: There will be a need to move away from the traditional dashboards and work on more collaborative tools.
